America in Stone and Steel
November 14 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm
America in Stone and Steel is a multimedia presentation that focuses on monuments and memorials around the world and investigates their current meaning – often in contrast with their original intent. They are examined both as important works of public art, as well as strong cultural statements. Behind the scenes, stories illuminate such icons as the Statue of Liberty, the Lincoln Memorial and the pyramids of Egypt.
